The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Frank Furter with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.004 billion Archivists live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 5,243 trillion slightly grubby dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 436,831 slightly grubby dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,546,243 per year while the poor average 89,104, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, and members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Fingered Ugly Dolphin-Octopus Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Unlimited Cheap Data.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 235,969th in the world and 464th in Forest for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring zero on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
